Easter 2014

       This was Amelia's first Easter, she obviously didn't know what was going on but she did enjoy watching all the kids at the park finding all the eggs. On the Saturday before Easter there was an Easter egg hunt at the park in New Plymouth, so we took Tage, Adelyn and Amelia to go find eggs. My little sister Wendi came also and she brought her roommates little girl too, all the kids had a good time they found a ton of eggs and it was pretty good weather for it all. I had to work that day and on Easter Sunday so I didn't get to spend a bunch of time with the girls but we did get to do the hunt on Saturday and our own little hunt on Sunday.

The girls get a little basket on Easter with a few little trinkets and this year Adelyn got a pirate fairy doll and Amelia got a little octopus and an outfit. After our little hunt I went to work and my mom took the girls to church. Casey wasn't able to  make it from Washington this year to be here for Easter but I sent him pictures and the girls and we got to call him so they were okay with it I guess. But here are some pictures of the girls having fun.

 My Sweet girls, Amelia was so excited to sit in the front of our new stroller, she looks like such a big girl. makes me a little sad to see them growing up so fast. 

 This is Adelyn and Isabel (Wendi's roommates daughter)

Everyday life

Going back to work was such a hard thing for me, I love what I do I really do it is interesting and it challenges me and I get adult time which is nice most of the time, but the only thing I have every wanted to be was a stay at home mom and it is super hard leaving my little girls while I got to work.
It has been easier because I have such great babysitters, there is a family that lives down the road from my parents that they watch the girls, they are good family friends and both the girls really like going there. They spend time painting Adelyn’s nails, and playing tea party and play outside. She loves all the attention and asks all the time to go over there.
My schedule was super crazy in the beginning but it has now settled into a pretty decent consistent schedule.  I work 6 on 3 off, then 3 on 2 off. I get Thurs and Fri off one week and then Fri-Sun off the next so I work every other weekend instead of every weekend which is super nice.  My shift is what they call a swing shift I work 4pm to 1230am accept on Saturday and Sunday I work 2pm to 1230am. It will be a good schedule for me because once we sell the house Casey will be going to school and it will either make it so we don’t have to use babysitters or, we will only have to use one once in awhile and it will only be a couple hours here and there. Right now I drop the girls off at the babysitters usually at 315pm and my mom picks them up at 530pm and then watches them til I get home at 1am.
Its hard because my mom doesn’t get much sleep and its also hard because I don’t get to tell my girls good night and put them in be most days, but it makes it so I am with them most of the day so I guess any job would be give and take. It will be nice when Casey gets here and we get our own house and we’ll be closer to work and stuff.  
Now I am offically caught up on my blog, the next blog I write will be in present time and I will try and keep it up to date all the time, I just figure my life isn't very interesting but I guess that isn't the point.
Here are just some random pictures of my girls! 

Amelia Newborn Pictures

        I forgot to post Amelia's newborn pictures, I loved how they turned out. It took some effort to get her to cooperate but it was worth it. Stacie did such a good job with all of them she has done several of our pictures and they always turn out so wonderful!

Family pictures 2013

A Lady in our ward was starting a photography business and we asked her to do ours and they turned out so wonderful! I love them so much and they sure do capture my little Adelyn's personality. Enjoy!

My Baby girl is 3!!

Adelyn turned 3 on January 27th, I had been asking her for awhile what kind of birthday she wanted. She became obsessed with Frozen the movie and that is what she decided to have her birthday party theme be.
Frozen was not an easy theme to do since it was just a brand new movie, I did finally find some Frozen stuff at the party store in meridian.
Adelyn got a frozen theme dress, crown and jewelry set, a Doc McStuffins and Lamby, a couple fairies, the movie planes, a Brave bow and arrow set and a few other things.
 From Nana and Pops

 Her Aunt Bonnie got her the Frozen dress and tiara and jewelry

 Auntie Dee got her a bow and arrow set 

 Casey and I got her this chair and she loves it, it even has a cup holder. lol

Amelia got her two necklaces one has Ariel on it and the other has Minnie Mouse

I made her a cake because she isn’t a big cake fan anyway and I just put an edible picture on top that was frozen.

Things to know about Adelyn when she turned 3:
·         Her favorite color is pink
·         She will eat almost anything, she loves burgers, and fruit and veggies she also like Panda Express.
·         She has a huge vocabulary for a 3 year old but there are still some cute sayings that she says like si-cee (spicy), hims (his, or he), own-a-mine (my own), too later (for something that will come later whether it be in an hour or weeks). Go-dead (in stead of saying where did sissy go she says where did sissy go-dead I don't know why and I do correct her but she still says it this way.)
·         She LOVES to sing and dance, it doesn’t matter when or where. If she is in the car it is usually super loud, but usually the right words. We have the Frozen soundtrack and we listen to it in the car all the time.
·         She is my big helper and is always willing to help out, although she usually loses interest quickly in whatever she is doing for me.
·         She loves to color, and blow bubbles, and just play outside, she likes to have tea parties
·         She is saving money to go back to Disneyland she has three piggy banks and she tells me half is for a new house with a puppy and the other half is for Disneyland. She has saved $125.00 so far, and any time she sees a coin she runs and picks it up and tells me here mom for my bank.
·         She gives “lovin’s” which is where she comes cheek to cheek with you and then rubs her cheek on yours back and forth. It’s super cute and it doesn’t happen often so it’s nice when it does.
She is a joy to have around and I can’t imagine my life without her, she is such a special little spirit and I can’t wait to see how she will continue to develop and how her personality will grow and change.
